    fault light on pentair superflo pump

    I discovered the breaker tripped to our pentair superflo pump and flipped the breaker back on. Power was restored, howeve the pump wouldn't start. I made sure it was still programmed and pressed the step 1 button then the start button. After several seconds the fault light came on. I tried turning the breaker off a couple of times but didn't get a different outcome - still a fault light. I took the cartridge filter out and cleaned it very well. I filled up the pump basket area with water, although it never filled all the way (I finally gave up, not knowing where the water was going other than into the pool). The fan housing area is clean and the pump is not a year old yet. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Can you rotate the pump by hand? Is the fault light blinking or solid on?
